Monday, Dec. 9

1.  First, sorry there was no blog on Friday.  Thank you so much for helping our class collect soup cans, etc. for the Food Bank, and money too.  I will be sure to make 2 baskets and bring them next week.   The students had a lot of fun drawing Andy Warhol like soup can art, figuring out Math Pi using circumference and diameter of a can and having races to hypothesize why some were quicker and rolled longer than others.

Today's notes:
1.  Lion, Witch slips- pls get them in if you have not!
2.  Report card card envelopes!
3.  Poetry-entire project polished with pictures and color- due thursday.
4.  Conjunction sheet- due Tuesday.
5.  Paragraph #3- Term 2- due Tuesday.  If parents  have time to check spelling or punctuation errors before they hand in for mark, this helps them understand the editing process.  If not, no worries.
6.  Special Friday- bring mug and cookies of possible. I'll supply hot chocolate and marshmallows. It is Poetry Reading from 1:30 to 2:30.
7. We also need a some greenery- a small bag of pine cones, pine, cedar... WE are making a candle centerpiece. I have candles, plate, etc..  We will be doing these Thursday. If you cannot send anything, hopefully someone else will have extra.
